Phou Si Mountain offers breathtaking panoramic views of Luang Prabang, which is located at the confluence of the Mekong river and Nam Khan river. Temple Mount Phou Si, or the Sacred Mountain as it is often known, did not earn its name by chance. There are temples with religious monks at the top of Phou Si. The mountain is a popular tourist destination for visitors from all corners of the globe. What makes this mountain so fascinating? First, it overcame a very tangible road to the summit of Phou Si with its unique history, and second, it overcame a very palpable path to the top of Phou Si with a magnificent view that opens up to everyone (the height of the mountain is one hundred meters). A three hundred and twenty-nine-step stone stairway was built to help with this path. The path to this attraction starts at its foot; gazing up, you won't be able to estimate the path's complete length. The transitional platforms, which the builders are compelled to link on the stairs because they turned out to be too tortuous and small, will avoid this. So get ready to climb - once you've completed the final 329 steps, you'll arrive at your destination. Mount Phou Si is the genuine icon of Luang Prabang and its ancient cradle. Several temples that are still in use today can be found here, and hundreds of monks live peacefully in them. The white pagoda That Chom Si is the Sacred Mountain's major attraction. It was constructed in 1803. The statue of a fat and tranquil Buddha, clothed in gilding, is another popular tourist attraction, in addition to temples. Buddha is situated on one of the rocky niche's slopes. As previously stated, the opening scene far exceeds all expectations. As though in the palm of your hand, the city also offers a stunning panoramic view of Luang Prabang and its surrounds. Climb the hill on the Nam Khan River's bank then descend the opposite side to the Royal Palace. Photo by Colin Roe on unsplash.com
